Your Perks: 1) The softest, most water-resistant leather bags out there—if there’s a classier way to carry your stuff to the beach, we don’t know it. 2) A one-month supply of memory-enhancing “genius pills.” 3) Your very own pet jellyfish and LED-lit aquarium. Start thinking of jellyfish names.
Things to do for June 26, 2014
Suits, Shandies and Freddie Mercury Burlesque
Don’t forget to tip your weekend, folks.
New and Edible Asian Things in Kendall
A new hot pot spot (silly rhymes) just opened in Kendall. We’ll start listing things that they have until we come across something you hate. Ready: Taiwanese soup dumplings. Pork belly ramen. Sake sangria. Fried oysters. Fried ice cream. We quit.
There was only one way American-made ruggedness emporium Ball and Buck could get more American. And that was by plastering their pocket tees, shirts, belts, bow ties and neckties in stars and stripes. Well, they went ahead and did that with their new America Collection. Fourth accordingly.
Freddie Mercury + Burlesque = Yep
Remember your great idea? The one where a bunch of burlesque girls do their thing to the sweet sounds of Freddie Mercury via a Queen cover band? We couldn’t believe no one thought of that. Until Oberon put this Queen-inspired burlesque show together. Oh well. Might as well see it anyway.
You asked for a truck full of grilled cheese. Roxy’s brought it. Then you asked for an Allston brick-and-mortar full of grilled cheese. Roxy’s brought it again. Then you asked for a party with six homemade shandies, a DJ, $2 Narragansetts and $3 grilled cheeses. You see where this is going.
Great News for People with Bodies
Heads up for that torso and those arms of yours: Blank Label is opening their second showroom in a smashing Downtown Crossing spot full of folks ready to measure you for custom-fit shirts and suits. Oh, and there’s an old bank vault inside. Just seemed like you should know that.
